Turkey ready to tighten security over Syria’s Manbij, Erdogan tells Trump



Manbij has emerged as a focal point of tensions after Trump’s decision to withdraw 2,000 US forces out of northeastern, duo the decision have come under criticism after four US personnel died in a bombing last week,

A statement from the newsmen has confirmed that the Turkish president Erdogan has reached out to President Donald Trump stating that the attack in Manbij was a provocation by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL,ISIS) to influence the expected US troop withdrawal from the war-torn country.


US officials have since been walking back his timeline, suggesting the conditions for any such withdrawal were finishing off ISIL, and Turkey assuring the safety of Kurdish troops allied with the US.

Erdogan also confirmed that Turkey is ready to take over security in Manbij after sunday’s  phone conversation came successful between the two leaders in which they discussed the situation in northeastern Syria amid rising tensions over the fate of Kurdish fighters in the war-torn country.


In its statement about the latest call, the Turkish presidency also said that the two leaders had agreed to accelerate discussions between their chiefs of staff about a safe zone in northeastern Syria.
